5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book packed full of insight and insanity that'll have you chuckling throughout., 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France (Paperback)
This book is a delight from start to finish. Written with a wonderful flare for the language and a sharp eye for the subtle nuances and absurdities of every day life, it gives you an hilarious window into the trials and tribulations encountered when the most English of Englishmen and his family move lock, stock and barrel to the south of France. It's full of the kind of genuinely funny moments and observations that'll have you laughing out loud and then recounting what you've just read to those around you. Refreshingly free of cliches, you feel like you're getting a real insight into life in rural France and a unique and warm-hearted perspective on what makes our gallic cousins tick.
Misses Moore's endearing if impractical desire to adopt every unloved animal in France is the source of many of the book's funniest moments but undoubtedly, the star of the show is Junior the hate-filled horse who the author is locked in a never-ending and futile battle of wills with.
I'd whole-heartedly recommend this book to anyone. It's an ideal holiday read or a perfect way to turn your daily commute into a joy. Now I've finished it, my girlfriend has started reading it to see why I've been chuckling away so much and I've already ordered a copy for my Dad as an early Father's day present.
Read it - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France.
I absolutely agree, once I started reading this book on my Kindle I found it very hard to put it down. Can't remember the last time I actually laughed out loud when reading a book. Very descriptive, honest and funny. I would heartily recommend it to everyone - I have already to my friends who have been wondering what I am laughing at,
